So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

What People Are We?

While in California last month, Dina and I picked up a new catchphrase.

We were at an In-N-Out Burger in Ventura, having lunch. Good times right there. Then a woman came in with five or six little girls, mostly well behaved, but one of the littlest had a meltdown over whoknowswhat? A barrette, someone stole her purple pony, cheeseburgers go straight to her hips? Anything really (and it's not important to the story).

The mom took the child aside and said (according to Dina who was eavesdropping),"We are not a people who throw tantrums in public."

"We are not a people who" is appropriate for so many occasions.

We are not a people who:
Try it today.



3 Snarky Remarks:

What's wrong with flossing with tinsel? Gotta keep that Christmas spirit somehow.

Oh man, In N Out? I'm droooooolllling! The best burgers anywhere.

And I'll have to remember that little catch phrase and use it on my own darlings.
